When a doctor, another licensed professional, a hospital or other health care institution faces allegations of negligence, the stakes are incredibly high. Given that medical malpractice lawsuits against physicians and other providers are typically viable only when the outcome for the patient was extremely adverse or fatal, millions of dollars often hang in the balance for the insurer.
Equally important, doctors, nurses and other health care practitioners must secure rigorous defense of their livelihoods and professional reputations. Our attorneys emphasize confidentiality, discretion and close alignment with clients' key goals from the outset to the conclusion of every case we handle.
